Best Places to Get Cakes & Cupcakes? Not Magnolia.

Best Places to Get Cakes & Cupcakes? Not Magnolia (already been).

Which bakeries are best for this purpose? Would love to try some new places.

Thanks so much.

  1. Do you want vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, some other specialty flavors? How standard or creative/out of the box do you like them? What kind of frosting do you like...?

      Thanks so much for the link!

      I am open to all flavors and would love creativity/out of the box. To narrow down my options I would say... Places that really do specialize in cakes & cupcakes... that do not have them "on the side"... Right around or below 50th street... Big variety... Presentation as important as taste.

      Thanks so much in advance if you can throw a couple of names my way.
